Australian filmmaker Mark Shea takes a trip to North Korea (The People’s Democratic Republic of Korea) with Young Pioneer Tours.
This video is part three of a brief overview of what I saw in North Korea. We visit Kaesong — the capital of Korea during the Koryo Dynasty and the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)
Kaesong, the ancient capital of Korea, is like a tourism boom town waiting to happen. It did not escape me that we were the only group walking the quaint cobbled streets surrounded by traditional houses. Visiting the museum and learning of the history of the Koryo period, I thought to recent history, political movements, and how only sixty years have made the two Korea’s, North and South, so indistinguishable.
The demilitarised zone really took me by surprise. I was expecting stern faced soldiers ready for attack. Instead I discovered bus loads of Chinese tourists, snapping photos with obliging soldiers.
